Gm   F      Gm        F      Gm     F  
Ghetto, Ghetto,  Ghetto, Ghetto livin

VERSE 1

Gm                          F
These streets remind me of quicksand 
           Gm                   F
When your on it you keep goin' down - goin' down
            Gm
And there's no one to hold on to
            F
And there's no one to pull you out
             Gm
You keep on fallin'
                         F
And no one can here you callin'
                         Gm
So you end up self-destructin'
                                              F                                    Gm
On the corner with the tuli on the waist line just got outta the bing doin' state time
                                    F
Teeth marks on my back from the canine
                                       Gm
Dark memories of when there was no sunshine
                          F
They said that I wouldn't make it
                      Gm
I remember like yesterday (hey)
                      F
Holdin on to what God gave me


CHORUS

VERSE 2

Gm                  F                                  Gm
No need to cherish luxuries 'cause everythin' come and go
                               F
Even the life that you have is borrowed
                               Gm
'cause you're not promised tomorrow
                         F               
So live your life as if everyday's gonna be your last
Gm
Once you move forward can't go back
F
Best prepare to remove your past
Gm
Cause you gotta be willin' to pray
            F                                     Gm
Yeah there gotta be there gotta be a better way -oh

Yeah you gotta be willin to pray
           F                                       Gm
Yeah there gotta be there gotta be a better way -hey
                                       F
Whoever said that this struggle would stop today
                        Gm
A lot of niggas dead or locked away
                      F
Teenage Women growing up with AIDS

Every day is a fight in the ghetto oh oh oh oh oh
    Gm
Got kids to feed in the ghetto
       F
Selling coke and weed in the ghetto
      Gm                                  F
